The heroes of a story are suddenly ambushed but are shot with {{Tranquilizer Dart}}s, KnockoutGas, StunGuns or something with a similar effect, and not lethal weapons, because the ambushers want them alive.

When this happens in video games the player's weapons and items are usually taken away. In some games there will be an opportunity for the player to get their items back shortly after the Knockout Ambush, in others the game might give different items to replace the ones lost.

* ''Videogame/MegaManBattleNetwork 5'': in the first chapter, Lan and his friends visit his dad's office as the latter is going to show something. Suddenly, gas grenades roll from outside and burst, knocking them all out. Then some GasMaskMooks enter the room to confirm the gas concentration before their boss, Dr. Regal, walks in and orders them to kidnap Lan's dad and confiscate Lan's friend's PET devices. Lan himself, meanwhile, escaped notice because he's in a closed part of the room (in his dad's personal work space, as he's told to take something from there).

* The four are ambushed by [[spoiler: Brox and Co. and the Raleka]] in [[GhostCity Ehndris]] in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' in an ambush where none of the four are meant to be killed, though only one of them (John) is actually knocked out (well, he's put to sleep). Paul is mind-controlled and led away, George is briefly paralyzed so they can take his RingOfPower and render him harmless, and the ambushers do nothing to Ringo because they know he can't do anything to anyone at that point.

**[[spoiler: Brox]] lampshades this a bit when [[spoiler: he/she asks Grunnel]] why they didn't just kill Ringo and George. [[spoiler: Grunnel]] basically admits to being too fond of them to kill them, and also that [[ForTheLulz it's funnier to have them watching helplessly while the others are being put to use]].
